Current Awareness: setting up alerts

You can keep up to date with the most recent developments in the area you are interested in by using the current awareness tools available on databases. Both LexisLibrary and Westlaw UK allow you to set up current awareness alerts/updates.

Newspaper databases

Why use newspapers?


Newspapers are often discounted as sources of information as they are not 'academic'. However they can be very useful as they provide:

  • Legal news
  • Reports of recent cases
  • Information about local events
  • Current information

All broadsheet newspapers include legal news and case reports. 'The Times Law Reports' are available in The Times.
